Man Booker Prize 2015 – Short List

It turns out that my predictions for this year’s Man Booker Prize short list weren’t very good!  I correctly predicted A Little Life and A Brief History of Seven Killings, but that was it.

The final short list is:

  • A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
  • The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma
  • A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
  • A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James
  • The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota
  • Satin Island by Tom McCarthy

I think that this is a really interesting mix, and I’m going to try and read them all before the winner is announced on 13 October.  If I had to make an early call, I’d go for A Brief History of Seven Killings to win, but I may revise that when I’ve read more of the short list!
